A moderate route that is overshadowed in both quality and difficulty by its neighbors.

The gear was a bit sparse but not unsafe.


The first route from the left, Ringtail Cat starts in a dihedral behind a pine tree.


Standard or light Mt Lemmon rack.

The route officially does not have chains but many climbers traverse right at the finish to the chains of Ruby / Lipstick.

Alternatively a gear anchor can be constructed. To descend either walk off or use the chains for Ruby / Lipstick to lower. The chains can be reached from above with a forth class scramble along the crest.
